Punky Brewster is the latest ’80s TV show to receive the reboot treatment.
UCP is developing an all-new revival of the half-hour comedy series, according to E! News. (And yes, Soleil Moon Frye is set to reprise her role as Penelope, or “Punky.”)
The new version will focus on the grown-up orphan, who is now a single mother of three children. Things come full circle when Punky meets a young girl who reminds her of her younger self and, well, watch the show to see for yourself.
In addition to her starring role, Frye will serve as an executive producer alongside the original series creator, David Duclon. The show will be written by Steve and Jim Armogida (School of Rock, Grounded for Life).
